Slideshow of French SF equipment

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. No Haribo, they are clearly gay.
  2. I take it that this new kit will be able to send a white flag 200 metres into the air and in 250 languages and dialects say "I surrender!!

  3. Intersting. I didn't know the French used land Rovers.

    Can members of the Foreign Legion join French regular army special forces, or does the Legion have its own?
  4. Foreign Legion has its own SF types- Previously known as CRAPs now known as Groupe Commando Parachutiste after too many p1ss takes on NATO exercises
  5. The GCP are not part of the COS, the French DSF; they are like the Pathfinders of the British paratroopers; well trained but technically not part of the SF.
  6. They use the same specialized version as the Italians, they are faster in reverse than forward due to the gear box being turned 180 degrees so 1 forward gear and 5 reverse. :twisted:
